Portland, Oregon is one of the most unique cities in America. Known for its art scene, parks and gardens, food and drink, breweries and tax-free shopping, Portland is rich in culture and history. Recently named North America's "Best Big City" by Money Magazine, Portland truly has it all. Many major attractions are walkable from the hotel, while other destinations are easily reached via the Portland Streetcar or MAX rail line out front.
Portland has taken the food scene by storm! The city is dotted with some of the best food carts on the west coast. Ranging from breakfast to Belizean, hot coffee to hot pot, you’re bound to be truly amazed with what Portland’s food cart chef’s are whipping up in their cart-kitchens. You should definitely plan to graze your way through the city’s carts, while visiting other hot spots too, like Pioneer Courthouse Square or Powell’s Books.
From a noon-time summer concert to a 2-Story tent filled with the most delicious locally crafted brews from around the area, you just never know! Keep wandering through the city, and you’re bound to run into Powell’s books. One of the largest used bookstores in the world, you can get just as lost inside Powell’s as you can exploring the streets and beats of Portland.
